About

The possibilities are endless for this beautiful single family home with a separate lock off apartment in Eby Creek.  Ideal for full-time residents, second homeowners, or investors alike, it’s an ideal 1031 property.  

Reach out for a spreadsheet financially analyzing whatever use you are considering:

  1. Own as a primary/second homeowner renting the apartment to cover 400k of the purchase price (it will feel like a 1.195 million dollar mortgage!). 

  2. Own as a primary owner or second homeowner and use the apartment over the garage for a multitude of situations: aging parents or children, guest apartment, home business or an art studio.  

  3. Second homeowner that rents the property short term as a vacation rental so that you can enjoy use around rentals.  

  4. Purely an investment property.  With two separate rentals within one, this property will rent easily and for top dollar.
